In Defense of Tim Floyd

Paul Shirley, who played for Floyd at Iowa State and who wrote a very candid and at times hilarious book on his life as an NBA journeyman and international hoops gypsy, wrote a great piece that appeared on HoopsHype about Floyd.

Bottom line: Shirley doesn't think that Floyd committed the violations of NCAA rules that are alleged against USC with regard to O.J. Mayo.

My take:

1) Shirley is as honest as they come, and his vouching for Floyd is high praise.
2) The investigators will have to determine what happened, and if something bad did, whether Floyd had anything to do with it.
3) If nothing happened, it's a shame for Tim Floyd to have to go through all of what's he's gone through and will continue to go through.
